Letoslav

Description
One half summer, one half Xmas
Ingredients
2ozBecherovka
1ozSimple syrup (1:1 water:sugar)
1ozLemon juice
Instructions
Mix and shake. Serve on the rocks in a martini bowl or lowball glass. Twist of lemon.
Notes
Rich, redolent cocktail that, though highly accessible, hints at exotic depths of spice. (Lime juice also works very well.) KC has made me aware of the Metamorphosis (served at the Eastern Standard in Boston), which uses honey syrup instead of the simple syrup used in this recipe. I've tried both (several different kinds of honey even), and this recipe is superior. The honey just muddies the complex spice profile of the Becherovka.
History
Something I whipped up to make use of the Becherovka my wife had in the freezer.
